Seair Aha is passionate performing artist and lifelong student of the stage. After participating in every theatrical production she possibly could, from kindergarten through high school, she went on to receive a bachelor's degree in Theater Arts from UNC-Wilmington.
Since graduating, she has been producing experimental and alternative shows of her own and passionately studying transnational (popularly known as tribal fusion) belly dance and Bharathanatyam Indian classical dance. She makes up half of the fusion dance duo, Aha Musery, with teacher and friend, Damion Bond. She is also the director of Aha Moment Productions, a theatrical dance and electronic music project.

Her passion for spiritual philosophy, mythology, and the performing arts come together in her performances and in her teaching style. Her mission as a teacher is to share with others the process of exploring the following concepts personally: dance as a vehicle for gaining insight and deepening connection to the inner and external world. Gaining greater freedom in movement, both physically and creatively. To find a focused intention, peaceful flow, full engagement, and consistent progress in daily practice. To explore and uncover the elements of our work that create the most fulfilling and uplifting experience for both the artist and the audience.

What makes Aha Moment unique: Philosophical exploration of performance and creativity. Integration of spiritual tools such as astrology and tarot. Mindful application of these explorations for a fulfilling daily practice and performance experience. Practicing compassionate analysis of self and others to provide constructive feedback. A holistic approach.

The holistic approach to performance cultivation includes:

MENTAL
-Clear Understanding and Intention in choices
-Cultural context, etc
-Symbols, story, archetype, myth
-Healthy feedback structure for self and others
-Tools to analyze performances so that intentions can be realized.
-Research and study about chosen performance themes
-Engagement with resources on performance theory and creativity
-Understanding music theory and rhythm

PHYSICAL
-Technique training
-Foundational movement vocabulary
-Cross-training in relevant styles
-Conditioning and Fascia work
-General health and self-care
-Diet, sleep, meditation, hydration
-Costuming and Adornment
-Makeup
-Venues, set and stage design
-Tech elements: sound and lighting

EMOTIONAL
-Emotional Engagement
- pulling from life experiences or using acting techniques to channel
-Performance as manifestation tool
-Connection to music
-dynamics and musicality
-Infusing each movement with meaning

SPIRITUAL
-Finding your personal purpose and creative voice
-Tapping into “Flow”
-Remaining grounded and present during performance
-Breathwork
-Fostering personal connection to spirit through daily practice and/or use of spiritual tools such as astrology, tarot, meditation, and free-writing.
